The #1 Escape Room
in Amsterdam

5 stars on TripAdvisor

Long has it been rumoured that famous Dutch architect H.P. Berlage was a member of the secretive Society of the Crossed Keys; a group of luminaries that guarded some of the world’s most powerful secrets.

Ever since Berlage’s death in 1934, no one has seen or heard of the Society or their secrets. We now suspect that their last remaining trace may be hidden inside a newly discovered room, appearing to be the architect’s old office. This is where we call upon your most immediate help.

• Winner of The Golden Lock-in Award
• Ranked #7 of Best Escape Rooms in the World
• Nominated Best Special GameDutch Game Awards

The Mission
Form a team of highly skilled thieves to steal a mysterious object from a heavily protected safe. Should you get caught, we will deny any knowledge of this operation.

• Strict minimum team size of 4 players
• Requires fluency in English

This is not your average escape room. The Vault requires you to think on your feet, bluff your way past guards and think outside the box. If you’re looking for a more classic escape room experience, we recommend our other adventure, The Architect.

  • What is your policy regarding COVID-19? Do we need a proof of vaccination or negative test result?

    When it comes to COVID-19 we follow the guidelines of our government! Right now this means washing your hands, and keeping a safe distance of 1.5 metres from our hosts, who will do the same.You don’t need a proof of vaccination or negative test result to play our rooms. Therefore we don’t require any kind of QR code or Coronacheck.

  • What’s the difference between the experiences?

    The Architect is an escape room based experience with a playing time of 60 minutes. The Vault is not an escape room, but an immersive ‘break-in’ experience with a playing time of 80 minutes. Due to its unique concept, The Vault is experienced to be slightly more challenging than The Architect. Both experiences are unique and lots of fun.

  • Can we play both experiences at the same time?

    Yes! Both experiences run on the same time schedule (every two hours). Please note that they have different time limits (The Architect 60 min., The Vault 80 min.) so chances are the two groups won’t end at the same time.

  • Can we do the experience with more than 6 at the same time?

    6 players is our maximum. With more players, the group dynamic changes and the experience isn’t as much fun. Due to strict regulations regarding COVID-19, we don’t make exceptions.

  • Is the location wheelchair accessible?

    Unfortunately our location is not wheelchair accessible. Both experiences are located in the catacombs of the Beurs van Berlage, only to be entered by stairs.

  • Do you take unpaid reservations?

    No, we only take paid bookings. This makes our system faster and more transparent!

  • What is your cancellation policy?

    All purchases are final. If you can’t make your appointment anymore, and you notify us 72 hours before your starting time, we can reschedule your booking at no extra cost, or -if you don’t know a new date yet- we can give you a booking voucher for you to use later (this voucher will be valid for 5 years).

Together with Uncover Lab, we designed
a beautiful, personalized wooden giftcard.

Every card gets made to order in Amsterdam,
laser-engraved with a personal and unique booking code,
which you can choose yourself.

The makers at Uncover can send it gift wrapped
to you or directly to the recipient, who can then pick the date
for their game themselves on our site, using your code.

If you are in a hurry we may even be able to arrange
for it to be made today, so you can still pick it up at Uncover Lab
(De Hallen, Amsterdam) in time for that birthday party tonight.
Please give us a call if the order is urgent.

Gift cards are sent with PostNL so keep in mind that delivery dates are an indication only, and that during busy times such as the holidays, mail delivery might have delays.

Buy a giftcard for one of our experiences:
The Architect game €129
The Vault game €159


We are building a worldwide top quality mystery experience brand. This means we treat requests to collaborate somewhat differently from most other escape game brands. We believe in extreme levels of detail and creativity and we spend a lot of time finding the perfect location. We believe that if you create an extraordinary, pinnacle experience, not only will your business flourish, but also, the opportunities that come your way will be the most worthwhile. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a quickly deployable, less demanding experience, we advise you to look further.

If you’re interested in joining forces with our particular brand of mystery makers, and our team of behavioral designers, architects, writers and visual artists, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please email our core team at

For Companies

Escape games are exceptional in putting teams to the test. Collaboration, communication and creativity are crucial in finding your way and the time element adds both pressure and joy to the experience. Just a fragment of the companies whose teams we’ve hosted:

We’ve also used the game as a recruitment tool; allowing company recruiters to evaluate candidates’ performance within a team and under pressure.

To learn more about these options, mail us at


We’re not currently searching, but we’re always on the lookout for talented creatives in:

Graphic design
Community & communication
Concept development
Game design

If you’re interested, please send your best work to

No need to write a long message; if we love your work and know a project that could fit, we’ll get back to you asap. And if not, maybe next time.

Algemene Voorwaarden




Reserveren kan alleen online via Book now op

Na het maken van een reservering wordt een bevestiging per e-mail verstuurd. Wanneer deze bevestigingsmail niet is ontvangen, is de reservering niet vastgelegd. Let op, de bevestigingsmail komt af en toe in de spam folder terecht. U kunt de boeking opnieuw maken of contact opnemen met



Alle aankopen zijn definitief. In het geval dat u moet afzeggen, kunt u de afspraak tot 72 uur voor aanvang van de gereserveerde tijd direct verzetten of een voucher code ontvangen waarmee u later naar wens kunt boeken zonder extra kosten. Deze code is 5 jaar geldig. Sherlocked keert in geen geval van afzegging restituties uit.

Afzeggen is mogelijk via het e-mailadres:

Sherlocked heeft de mogelijkheid om tot 24 uur voor aanvang de reservering te annuleren of te wijzigen. In geval van een annulering van onze kant die niet onderhevig is aan overmacht (zie COVID-19) wordt het gehele bedrag binnen 30 dagen teruggeboekt.


Het Sherlocked team doet alles dat ze kan om te voorkomen dat het Corona-virus zich verspreid.

  • We desinfecteren onze kamers regelmatig gedurende de dag.
  • We vragen teams om hun handen grondig te wassen volgens RIVM-richtlijnen voor en na het spelen van de game.
  • Ons team neemt de maatregelen die het RIVM heeft bepaald serieus. Dit betekent dat ze u en uw team mogelijk geen hand meer geven om u te begroeten.

Sherlocked volgt voortdurend het advies van het RIVM. Als we onze kamers in de Beurs van Berlage moeten sluiten wegens COVID-19 op advies van de Nederlandse Staat, het RIVM of de Beurs van Berlage zullen we proberen een nieuwe speeldatum voor u te vinden. In dit geval is overmacht van toepassing: een refund is dan niet mogelijk, en we behouden het recht een reserveren te cancellen tot 1 uur voor aanvang van de geboekte tijd.


Wanneer je meedoet aan Sherlocked moet je begrijpen dat je niet een alledaagse bezigheid doet. Het is een spannend spel, maar ook geschikt voor zwangere vrouwen en mensen van 65+. Toch blijft deelname te allen tijde op eigen risico.



Het plezier van escape games is het oplossen van de puzzels. Gun je vrienden ook dit plezier en vertel ze over je ervaring, maar verklap niet de geheimen. Beschouw jezelf tot geheimhouding verplicht.



Kinderen van 13 jaar en jonger worden enkel toegelaten onder begeleiding van een persoon van 16 jaar of ouder.


Tijdens het spel is drugs- en/of alcoholgebruik verboden.

Wanneer bij aanvang van het spel een medewerker van Sherlocked twijfelt aan de gesteldheid van een deelnemer, heeft de medewerker het recht deze deelnemer te weigeren zonder restitutie.
